Zodiac Profile: Aquarius~ Aquarius ~Zodiac Profile: Aquarius2 years ago in Writing More Like This
So I'm sure you've heard the stories about Aquarius people. They're fun-loving, airy, a bit out of their minds.... Yeah, well, that stuff is all true! Well at least a little bit.
There are two kinds of Aquarians in the world: the loud, sociable, party animal type, and the reserved, shy but sweet type. I've even seen a few hybrids. It doesn't really matter though, because beneath that they're fundamentally the same. Both are exceptionally smart, funny, big-hearted (perhaps to a fault) humanitarians.
Both are also likely to have a large circle of what others might call friends, perhaps even the Aquarians themselves. But they might "feel" more like aqcuaitences to them. A lot of people might not realize it, but Aquarians often feel very lonely.
In fact, most Aquarian problems stem from (or are indeed) internal conflict. Deep down, Aquarians are very insecure. You think Virgo's are hard on themselves? Remember that Aquarius is Leo's opposite. So if Leos are bold and confident

A classy frontpage
Not necessary, but they pretty up the group page and make it more attractive. On non-premium groups, simple graphics like headers, footers, and dividers are nice. But on premium groups, you can do box backgrounds and fancy links and all that. A good non-premium group example is The-Peterpaws.
You can have one custom box on a non-premium group, so use it well. Fill it with good, brief but full information. You could also use the Admin box for information. For premium groups, you can do more than one and have backgrounds on them.
Include basic information on your group like a simple explanation on what your group is about, OOC or in character. Also include current assignments, events, or contests. You could include roleplay information like season, weather, and news. Also, it might be good to keep character counts like per gender or group.

Fan Fiction Basics: DialogueFan Fiction Basics: Dialogue3 weeks ago in Writing More Like This
The most common mistake I see in fan fiction from any fandom is pretty obvious: dialogue and punctuation.
While a full punctuation tutorial would be a little long, I thought that I would go ahead and try to brief you on the hows and whats of writing dialogue and what punctuation you should be using.
So, let's start by talking about the basics:
What is dialogue?
Dialogue is speech. Really, that's it. Speech. It's a major thing. It happens in almost every story (there are exceptions), and it usually makes up the bulk of how readers perceive characters, decide whether or not they're in character and also decide whether or not the author can tell their ass from an ash tray. That's kind of important. Anything your character says, whether it's a single word or a monologue

Have you ever caught yourself reading a book, manga or watching a TV show and wonder how the creator could come up with such a realistic character? Well, whether it'd be an anthro, anime or real-life character, characters take time to think through. In this tutorial, I will tell you just how to create that realistic and believable character! You can also use this tutorial to think through the characters you've already created in order to re-vamp their appearance and personality!
There are 3 important aspects to a character, they are: personality, design and purpose. Characters lacking one or more of those aspects may come off flat and boring. Personality is how the character acts and interacts with other characters. The personality is what gives your audience feelings for your character. Design is another important aspect. Their de

1. The Time Period
Especially for a human society on Earth. Do your characters live in medieval times? Elizabethan times? Prehistoric times? This will greatly affect many aspects of the characters in the story, such as their clothing, posture, vocabulary (I mean really youre not going to hear the word dude come out of a French aristocrat), rituals, law enforcement, etc. Do your research.
If your characters live in the present day, invest in a fashion magazine and a hairstyle magazine and try to keep up with the latest clothing trends.
2. The Worlds Geography
Making a map of your world might help, especially if youre intending on writing a story that involves a character going on an epic adventure that takes them all around the world. Of course you won
